Sheriff Darren Campbell states that on the 27th day of November Deputies responded out to the address of 105 Nicholson Way Rd in reference to a domestic. When Deputies arrived on scene they encountered several subjects at this residence. After Deputies completed their investigation it was determined that Jeffrey Scott Phifer had assaulted his step granddaughter. Deputies placed Jeffrey under arrest for assault on a female. Deputies then took Jeffrey before an Iredell County Magistrate who found probable cause and placed him under a $1,000.00 secure bond. Jeffrey was then put into the custody of the Iredell County Detention Center where he will be held till his court day or bond is made.
